Christmas in Paris .. understated elegance but somehow underwhelming after London. Then again, Paris is beautiful without the decorations.

Liberty of London ... Christmas windows 2014

Deirdre Brennan - Friday, December 12, 2014

I am spending far too much time reminiscing about this time last year in London ... the Christmas windows, the shopping, the Christmas lights and catching up with friends !!  I couldn't help but take a peek at Liberty's windows this year.

Harvey Nichols, Harrods, Fortnum and Mason and Liberty excel with their window display and they simply must be seen to be believed.  In Paris it is without doubt Hermes who win the prize.

They sparkle like jewels and are surrounded by crowds of admirers and adoring children, all rugged up against the winter chill.

All this is made that much more atmospheric with the shorter days ... the evening closing in by around 3.30pm.  This is the cue to head to somewhere smart like Claridges or Browns for High Tea or .. simply champagne.

This is without doubt my favourite time of year to be in London ... they do Christmas like nowhere else and I can't wait to give you a glimpse of London this time last year.  

Christmas 2014 is the beach for us ... and I can't wait but am reminiscing !!

christmas week in london 2012

Deirdre Brennan - Monday, December 17, 2012

Regent Street in London is the benchmark for Christmas decorations as far as I am concerned ... and the bar is always set extremely high !!! This is Christmas 2012 and it does not disappoint.

I love the way the smaller street around Regent and Oxford Street have their own theme ... Sth Molton, Carnaby etc.

Oxford Street ... what fun ... and I haven't even started on the ice skating in Hyde Park or at the Courtauld Gallery as yet.

Well that is London and we are here in Sydney.  I am so looking forward to my week finalising Christmas shopping, catching up with friends for some Christmas cheer and reporting on just how festive Sydney is looking Christmas week ... watch this space !!
